Blossoms say they’re “made up” as they celebrate Number One debut album

Meanwhile, Major Lazer, Justin Bieber and MØ remain on top of the singles chart

Blossoms have entered the UK albums chart at Number One with their self-titled debut.

Their album ‘Blossoms’ finished the chart week around 9,500 copies ahead of its nearest rival, ‘Landlord’ by British rapper Giggs.

“We’re absolutely made up that the album has gone to Number One. From the scaffolding yard to the top of the charts, who’d have thought it? Viva Stockport!” Blossoms told


Drake’s album ‘Views’ is at Number Three this week, followed by ELO’s best of compilation ‘All Over The World’ at Number Four. Last week’s chart-topper, the self-titled album by Viola Beach, falls to Number Five.

Wild Beasts enter at Number Nine with their fifth album ‘Boy King’, beating the Number 10 peak of their previous highest-charting album, 2014’s ‘Present Tense’.

Over on the singles chart, Major Lazer’s collaboration with Justin Bieber and MØ, ‘Cold Water’, holds on to the top spot for a second week. DJ Snake’s own collaboration with Bieber, ‘Let Me Love You’, has to settle for a Number Two debut. Calum Scott’s cover of the classic Robyn hit ‘Dancing On My Own’ is at Number Three.

Further down the chart, MØ climbs to a new peak of Number 14 with her solo offering ‘Final Song’, while Christine And The Queens’ slow-burning hit ‘Tilted’ cracks the Top 20 for the first time, sneaking in at Number 20.
